in the 2012 election. he got more than 70% of the hispanic votes. republicans realize that and you're starting to hear sort of this warming up to the idea to do something about immigration, immigration reform. and so, you know, the president had promised in his first campaign that he was going to make movement on this, did not deliver the way that some hispanics had expected him to do. they're hopeful that in his second term that can happen. >> dan lothian you just used the words warming up, and i know that you got the assignment outside of the national cathedral today and it is bitterly, bitterly cold. i want you to tell me a little bit about the warmth and love inside that cathedral. we're looking at more of the live pictures. this is an awesome event. people may forget it's an annual event that stems the lifetime of this country. give me a little bit of a play by play. >> reporter: that's right. you know, i can rewind a little bit to sort of the history of this. you look back to fdr and his first inauguration in 1933. that's when it first started happening here at the cathedral. it has not

possibilities. zwroo well, today is election day in jordan, and there are a couple of noteworthy things about the voting there today. yes, jordan is a kingdom, but people do get to pick some of the parliament. for the first time ever international observers were allowed to be watched over the vote looking for signs of glitches and intimidation. so far they report everything running smoothly. jordan remains pretty stable in a region turned upside down by the arab spring. this is a major point, too. jordan is friendly to israel. it's not without its problems though. that does bring us to israel. election time there as well. voters across israel choosing to keep prime minister benjamin netanyahu on the job. only his coalition kept enough seats to just stay in power. lost seats though, many of them to religious parties to the far right and to a new party with a surprising popularity. here's cnn's atika shubert. >> reporter: who is j.r.lapite. after tuesday's election, he is also the newest, brightest star on the political scene. his party winning an astonishing 18 seats in parliament. an upset th
's family, if you want to attack the candidate or the elected official, certainly that's your prerogative but generally family has been considered off limits, and that doesn't add anything to legitimate dialogue that really needs to take place on the issues of public safety and gun regulations. >> although some people are also criticizing president obama for surrounding himself with children, when he held his news conference on his gun control plans yesterday. should children be used in that instance? >> i don't think those children were "used." they were there at an event, they wrote letters to the president. he talked about the letters that they wrote. they're very concerned that something as horrific as newtown, connecticut, or things that happened on the streets in philadelphia, chicago, new york, washington, any city in america, could possibly happen to them, and i thought the president gave them a voice in this conversation. often the adults seem to forget that children care about these issues as well. >> but you know, some might argue that the children didn't actually need to be pr

of not spending personal time with member, leaders, both elected and non-elected, not opening up the white house. yop think he'll be able to do that and maintain his coalition over the next four years and i think that's going to require a lot of growth on his part. >> do you think it was legitimate, the criticism, even the suggestions he got, look, you've got to reach out more, even to people you don't like or agree with? >> some of it was legitimate, but what i don't think that people gave a fair amount of discussion to was the out-sized amount of venom direct the at this president. and i don't think that people had a real sense of just how bad things were in america. and i think that the president intentionally did not want to convey how terrible things were. because fundamentally, he's an optimist and the a pragmatist. so he really wouldn't walk around and describe to you, except in very rare times, how terrible things were and how close the country was of really having the economic system seize up. how close the country was -- >> did he ever discuss this with you? >> oh, sure. we had a meeti

before the election and didn't want to ruin that talking point. those in the white house obviously say it was purely for intelligence reasons they were not confident enough in the intelligence at that point to say to a certainty that without question it was a terrorist attack by such and such group, and in addition they did not want to let any of the bad dguy that they were wise to them. >> dana, i was surprised how tough senator mccain and rand paul was. neither one minced any words in going eafr tafter the secretary state. i suspect that's going to be a prelude before she testifies this afternoon. there are republicans on real t questions for her as well. >> there certainly are. in a way i actually am not that surprised. i know you've seen john mccain get even more aggressive with the person on e other side of the deus sitting in the witness chair. ran paul likely has aspirations for higher office but, yes, absolutely. that always tends to be kind of the atmosphere here on capitol hill. the house, they're kind of more rabl rousers for lack of a better way to say it. i was told today
